Steamboat Springs Ski Resort, located just outside of Steamboat Springs, boast 165 trails, a 3,668 foot vertical drop, and 2,965 acres making it one of the largest ski resorts in Colorado, U.S. Steamboat Springs Ski Resort offers a great mix of terrain and a cool western town which has been called “Ski Town, U.S.A.” due to the fact that more Olympians call Steamboat Springs Ski Resort home than any other ski resort. It is known for as one of the best ski resorts in the U.S. and is highly rated for superior snow, service, and terrain parks.
Steamboat Springs Ski Resort is known for two things: Champagne Powder® and Tree skiing. Champagne Powder® refers to the type of snow in the area. The mountain tends to get more snow and a drier, lighter kind of snow than most places in Colorado. But, just because Steamboat Springs Ski Resort is known for the powder and trees, doesn’t mean it’s an expert-only mountain. Steamboat Springs Ski Resort is a perfect mountain for intermediate and beginners with a great mix of terrain from steep chutes to wide open blue cruisers.
Steamboat Springs Ski Resort is a little hard to get to and the town is a little out of the way. But, you will find a town with a down-to-earth western vibe that is not glitzy or overpopulated. You’ll also find great skiing without the lines, fast efficient lifts, and Steamboat Springs Ski Resort has well-groomed slopes to suit all levels and an abundance of back country, off-piste options. The only downside is that Steamboat Springs Ski Resort has expensive lift tickets.
